its been a long weekend

a very long one.

i did have some port though. and i forgot how much i like port. now i remember.
it drinks so easily that one tends to forget how high the alcoholic content is.
until its too late. and often by then one doesnt care.
its all very nice though.
especially in the winter.

so...

i called my boss and told him i needed to speak to him about something important and would i be able to see him.
so he says "whaddayawannatalkabout?"
what the...?!
i toyed with the idea of asking him if he knew anything about what to feed a pet gecko that was HIV positive, but thought the better of it and asked if i might have some of his time on monday morning. he graciously agreed that i could call him at 9 to set something up.
so perhaps it'll all work out in the end.
one can hope...

michelle - i'd love to. but since youre there and i'm here...
this port is a wonderful heavy-ish wine that has distinctly different flavors in different parts of the bottle if allowed to sit for long enough undisturbed. its really a treat. not very expensive either.
alas, i have NO idea what to feed the lizard, and, lucky for me, i dont have a lizard. but i do have a boss.

Oh Justy Boy...most employers don't want to talk "raise" until you make it through the probationary period. So, if you get the extra $ then good for you. If he fires you then we expect continued blogging (even if you cry and blubber on.) We'll support you because we love you and if you were to fall away from blogging land - we'd have to do an emergency intervention for Diane. wink wink)

I'm following you via Robin at "Cinnamon & Honey" and I just had to take a break from reading your posts to say that I am getting a kick out of you.
I'm glad I came this way.

sweetcheeks - youre absolutely right. but after sitting through those harrowing training sessions (with no wine or other agent to help me through it) i realized that this so-called part-time job is not anything resembling part-time. it's quite full-time-ish. i would hate mayself in the morning.

ann - thank you very much. thats kind of you to say and it put a smile on this oh-so-rainy morning.

lee - thank you.

i thought lizards=bosses?
port--it sounds so proper. were you sitting on a leather divan in a library by a fireplace whilst you were drinking it? : )

ck - that would have been lovely. but no. i most certainly was not. but halfway through the bottle you can really be anywhere you want to be...
